Anxiety is raging over the health condition of ace comedian, Moses Adejumo popularly known as Baba Sala, following his admission at University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan late on Monday.
Adejumo’s son, Emmanuel, yesterday told journalists that his father was taken to the hospital after initial treatment in an Ilesa hospital failed to cure an unusual feeling which he developed last Saturday.
However, Emmanuel declared that the 80-year-old comedian was responding to treatment and that his condition was stable.
He said his father requested for pounded yam on Tuesday afternoon after he was resuscitated by doctors at the hospital.
Baba Sala’s son who did not reveal the cause of his sickness rather told our correspondent that the octogenarian needed oxygen when he was first taken to the hospital in Ilesa on Saturday.
According to him, “Baba Sala is getting better in UCH. He even demanded to be served pounded yam yesterday afternoon. He is speaking normally and responding to treatment. He felt uncomfortable on Saturday and he was taken to Adewale Hospital in Ilesa and he was better. On Sunday, he felt sick again and returned to the hospital. The doctor said he would need oxygen to treat him properly.
“After talking to our sister who is a matron in UCH, it was decided that we should bring him to Ibadan since the doctors’ strike had ended. There is no serious cause of his discomfort but I think its old age. The symptom is common in old people,” he added.
Emmanuel, whose stage name is Boi Sala, told our correspondent that he had received calls from people outside Nigeria who wanted to know if his father was still alive.
“People called me to know if Baba Sala had died. I have told them that my father is alive and okay.”
